The programme is open to graduates driven by a desire to develop a deep understanding of music history, analysis, and musical cultures. Exposed to current musicological thought and traditional methodologies, students are encouraged to grow as independent, open-minded scholars. You will explore a range of stylesfrom historical and contemporary art music, to Irish traditional music, to popular music of the last centuryand encounter multiple intellectual approaches to this material. Taught by staff whose research often ventures into interdisciplinary terrain, you will also consider how theoretical perspectives on gender, sexuality, race, literature, theatre, and film can shed new light on how we understand music.
